Acorns From The Healing Tree


"I have learned, in whatever state I am, therewith to be content." ~ St. Paul

Hamburgers be hanged!

You know that "whopper" meal we had on Saturday? Well, it did me in. So much for having one of them every month! Dad and my hubby are fine (of course, as nothing gets them upset, except for hot dogs, which make my husband throw up.) Anyway, I should have known not to be a hypocrite and eat stuff I say I never eat. I swear, that hamburger must have had some shellfish in it (which gives me a similar sick effect.) So what more can I say about being sick to my stomach for the past two days? It's not very interesting.

So this is what I eat when I feel sick: matzo and plain yogurt with banana on top. Of course tea is always on the menu. That settles the tummy as nothing else can - plain green tea or jasmine is best.

Anyway, Sunday was nice in a way. I just read a book all day. It is wonderful to be sick with something my family can understand. If one is throwing up nobody can say your faking it. Oh. Not that anyone ever says that to me, but I often get this reaction from strangers, who say, "Are you really sure you have MS?" I hate that. I know they are just trying to be nice and encouraging, so at least I have proof in the films from my MRI's.

I recently read about this young neurologist who also happens to have MS - now that would be the doctor to have. But, I digress, for I was talking about yesterday and reading. I read the book "Water for Elephants" which was good, although the title is misleading. It's mostly a story of people who are in a circus during the depression. There is an elephant in it, but I thought it was going to be more focused on the pachyderms, and it wasn't. I'm not that into the circus, but love elephants.

Sorry you were sick. But a whopper? I mean, since that isn't actually edible food meant for any living mortal being to ingest... well, you know how I feel about "meat" such as that. Annnnyyywwwayyy... I hope you are feeling better. That is a really cool title for a book, too bad it didn't live up to it.

Yeah - I thought the title sounded neat. I will never order any hamburgers anywhere from now on...there are always salads on the menu. :-)
